2 Faculty The Faculty of Education is located on three campuses, namely Bloemfontein, South and Qwaqwa Campuses. The faculty educates teachers in several disciplines. Our one role is to prepare preservice teachers for their work in schools, ensuring that they have a strong disciplinary base for their professional work. A second major role is the teaching of in-service educators. The work is informed by and closely related to our research and community outreach. We bring to our work a keen interest in the local context, as the opportunity for exploring issues that are universal in education. We work closely with schools and other sites of education and attempt to keep theory and practice in dialogue with one another. The faculty offers a wide range of undergraduate degrees and diplomas as well as postgraduate certificates, Honours, Master s and Doctoral study programmes. We place a high value on students as central to our work.
3 of Education Students in our undergraduate Bachelor of Education degree (offered in Pre-school and Foundation, Intermediate and FET phases) are preparing to be teachers in primary and secondary schools. The key teaching and learning tenet of the programme is reflection, with an emphasis on teaching prospective teachers about teaching as opposed to teaching them only how to teach. In the postgraduate area, we offer Honours and Master s Degrees and a Doctoral programme. The faculty produces large numbers of Honours and Master s graduates in critical areas such as Curriculum Studies, Higher Education, Psychology of Education, Philosophy and Policy Studies in Education, Comparative Education and Education Management. Within the continuing education sector, we offer the Advanced Certificate in Education (ACE), National Professional Diploma in Education (NPDE) both phasing out since 2014, Advanced Certificate in Teaching (ACT) and numerous short courses. Addressing the changing needs of the teaching profession, these courses are developed per tender and focus primarily on the upgrading of the knowledge and methodology of Science, Mathematics and Technology teachers in all the school phases. Research in the faculty includes work that is focused on issues of teaching and learning in specific disciplines, as well as research that focuses on matters that are more general, educational contents, social issues and curriculum more generally. 3 KOVSIE GUIDE 2015 Dean: Prof Dennis Francis In a world where education changes lives, we at the Faculty of Education change the social fabric of our community, culture and ultimately the world through interaction between teaching and learning.

The programme offers a choice between three different levels of postgraduate qualifications (for more information on the curriculum and admission requirements, please consult the relevant Yearbook): Postgraduate Diploma in Higher Education. MA degree in Higher Education Studies. PhD degree in Higher Education Studies. The Postgraduate Diploma programme is typically characterised by: an active, practical and resource-based approach; limited and evenly spread contact sessions to suit the busy schedules of higher education staff; structured team supervision; an interdisciplinary approach: students from any field of study may enrol; students are allowed to register for occasional studies in single modules in the programme; and a limited number of short learning programmes (e.g. on research methodology and assessment) that are credit-bearing towards the Postgraduate Diploma qualification. The research Master s and Doctoral degree qualifications in the programme involve the completing of a full research dissertation or thesis on any topic related to either Higher Education or Further Education. In both cases, a structured team supervision approach is also followed. 9 KOVSIE GUIDE 2015 Enquiries: Dr Victor Teise Tel: +27 (0) All information in this publication is subject to change.
